No need to ask Tony how he feels!  :laugh:

Hello Chuck

It is also reassuring the government of the Australian Capital Territory was returned yesterday.

I may go in the bedroom and turn on that TV for a while, Fritz, because my head is starting to feel bad.  I took something for a headache, so may have to rest in bed with the sound up, but may not see all the action.

Hope you're feeling better soon, Debbie.

The beginning of the 4th is a good time to leave.

May we and our democracy survive him.

I do hope so, Jenny.

There is research that shows that Maori were quite accepting of same sex relations until the Missionaries came.

I think gender diversity was accepted in moist Polynesian societies.

Got an email today from the man who organises the charity where I work on Mondays. I spoke to him for a few minutes last Monday, both wearing masks. He says he had a COVID test and has just heard it was positive, though his only symptom was a mild sore throat. Iíve also had a sore throat for about a week, nothing much, and it started soon after my flu jab, so Iíve been vaguely thinking it was to do with that - it started before I talked with Phillip so I canít have caught anything from him. Iíd like to have a test but donít fit the criteria. Iíve decided to stay at home tomorrow, and on Monday Iíll see if I can get any information from the health centre.

Hello Sara

I do hope you are safe.

I'm surprised that your sore throat doesn't fit the criteria for testing. We are constantly urged to have a test immediately when events mildest symptoms appear.

Love and Other Drugs with Jake G (and Anne Hathaway) was on TV here last night. I enjoyed the moments of Jake eye candy, but the straight rom-com twists and turns and the ad breaks made it become tedious.

Thanks, Fritz.  I did end up seeing the whole game except when I went out to the mailbox, to be sure of getting the mail before dark.

It was a strange score in the game, but not bad.

Now I'm going to rest for a while.

Now the alma mater, with most, but not all, people wearing masks.

Hi, Tony.  Nice to see you.  The game was almost over when Fritz left, and I saw most of the end after that.

Now going to lie down for a little while.

I will now head to the cafe and hopefully get a date and orange scone, heated with butter to have with my cappuccino. Sometimes they sell out. That will be my celebration of the election results.

I'm hoping we in the US can celebrate next month.

I'm glad the election turned out to have such positive results.   Here's hoping we get that too, here.

I was feeling tired, and I tried to take a nap, but I never fell asleep.  LOL   Oh well.

I've never seen this movie.  I don't go to movies often, but I think Jake is the actor I've seen the most.
